    Tell me about surviving one of these with a 22lr in you're hand, not to mention the big wolves we have now and overabundance of cats.

    That is a big one. Very nice. I thinky mes gotta get one this year.

    I don't think even a well placed .22 would do the job. Of course, avoiding a bear is quite easy.

    ETA: What do you suppose the weight was? That will certainly fill the freezer. I would so rug that monster.

    Okay, lol, here goes.... not me of course, (I would have crapped my britches, slipped in it, fell and broke my neck). .... Seems to me I even have the story in a book, (Outdoorlife Treasury of Stories) around here somewhere. Young outdoorsman alone in a canoe shooting rapids in coastal Alaska, disturbs a huge coastal brown bear looking for a seafood dinner. Makes it by the bear, hits calm water of pool after rapids. Here comes Yogi, rather enraged. Loaded takedown model 63 Winchester sticking out of backpack in front of him. As bears does belly flopper into pool and swims towards him, and yards becoming feet, and feet soon to be inches, he jams the two pieces of the 63 together and lets rip with a string of shots. Rifle empty, jammed, bad cartridge of whatever, the whole world stops. Silence, except for the unheard noise of the water, ears ringing, all is still, time has stopped, the bear mere inches from the canoe lays motionless on the surface of the water.......... Dead. True adventure story according to Outdoor life. seems examination showed more than one bullet had penetrated brain thru eye socket(s) thus killing the bear. Go figure. Was long before Snopes was ever heard of. True? Who knows?[gun][beer]

    That is Huge. In Mississippi we have bears but the ones I have seen are more dog sized. I agree a rug or blanket/spread or what ever the proper name is would be great.
